Saturday Instagram Recap, long time no see. This will be more of a May Instagram Recap haha. Eeeps I’m so excited for this three day weekend. Fancy Pants and I went to the Dbacks game last night and I can only imagine that is just the beginning of a super fun/relaxing weekend before the craziness of my baby brother’s high school graduation this week! I’m linking up with Sara at Pearls and Curls, so if you’re doing one be sure to link up here! If you’re wanting to commit to my instagram, (it’s a huuuuge commitment haha jk), follow me @Daniefaz for more insta-shenanigans.

For some reason, even though it’s a weekly link up, I always forget to actually queue my Saturday Instagram Recap because of my crazy Friday nights probably. (Just kidding, I watched Scandal in my sweats and ate Sonic take out with Fancy Pants!) I just got home from a baby shower for my cousin, so you’ll see that outfit tomorrow, but for now here’s my recap of the week’s instagrams. You’re also welcome to link up with Pearls and Curls too and also follow me on Instagram (@Daniefaz) for even more shenanigans of sorts.

Pre gym mirror selfie
New Olivia + Joy Bag
One of my many favorite shots from Ella’s Birthday Photoshoot.
I think I first discovered the Youtube beauty community via What’s in my Bag/Purse videos. I could watch those videos for hours on end and it was actually how I fell in love with my LV Speedy. There’s something so fascinating to see what other women keep in their bags because purses can be like a home away from home. You keep the things you use most often and swear by close at hand at all times. At least I do anyway. All of these necessities/totally random array of goodies/germaphobe tendencies are kept in my handy dandy (has anyone ever refferred to a LV as handy dandy? haha) Louis Vuitton Speedy 35that Fancy Pants graciously gave to me for this past Christmas. It is a perfect size and is such a classic bag that goes with any outfit.
Happy Saturday Instagram Recap day!! I’m currently curled up on the couch catching up on Scandal and doing a face mask. Casual Friday night…haha. I hope your weekend has started out a bit more exciting than mine. I’m linking up with the lovely Sara at Pearls and Curls and you should too!

I guess my Wednesday night looked similar to my Friday night. haha
Some weeks just fly by and others drag on like nobody’s business. This week dragged. I’ve been chasing the weekend since Monday practically. I started on the Tone it Up Meal Plan this week and it hasn’t been as difficult as I thought. (More on that in another post!) I’ve already lost 7 lbs which is fabulous because I’ve been eating mostly clean. Also I share in my post this week an adorable surprise package from the lovely Kimberly who blogs on Mornings at Pannikin and has recently launched Harriet Ann Creativewhich is a custom design company that specializes in stationary and event branding (invitations, thank yous, etc). I’m lucky enough to receive little notes and surprises (caramels, cookies) from Kimmie all the time, so I can attest to how great her work is. If you’re looking for stationary or things for your next party or get together, contact her: firstname.lastname@example.org!!! As always, I’m linking up with Sara at With a Hint of Bourbon. The button is on her blog or in my sidebar! :)
Black out night out!

Throwback Thursday to celebrate my aunt’s birthday!
Look at that, remember when I said I was partial to the scallop crazy scissors, I forgot that my Saturday Instagram Recap header had scalloped edges. haha. But anyways, this was an exhausting week. My aunt did finally come home from the hospital this week, but with a less than positive diagnosis unfortunately. Through the biopsy, she was found to have Hodgkins Lymphoma which is cancer of lymph tissue found in the lymph nodes. We are staying optimistic that through chemotherapy she will beat this. Please keep her and my family in your prayers. Now that I got that out of the way, as you can see I have quite a few products to review coming up so look out for that! Please link up via the button on the side and on Sara’s blog.

Hi everyone!!! I’m putting this up Saturday afternoon while doing my hair. Better late than never! :) I’ve had a crazy week at work tackling some new projects including our company website. It’s a WordPress based site, so I’ve been able to tweak it with my current knowledge and add so many cool new features from various tutorials. It’s been a large undertaking, but I’m enjoying it. Also, my aunt is currently in the hospital following a heart surgery, so I’ve been back and forth with not much time in my week to spare. I wanted to still get some posts up this weekend though. :) As always, if you do an instagram recap, link up with Sara at With a Hint of Bourbon and grab that button on the side.

Finding solace at Starbucks outside of the four walls of my office.
I’ve finally found the energy and motivation to blog! I don’t know if I’m alone in this, but when I’m having a rough week even the things I enjoy become overwhelming. There’s not much to say about this week besides the fact that I’m glad it’s over. You’ll notice there are lots of pick me ups in these Instagram pictures for this week. I tried really hard to cheer myself up and when that didn’t work I turned to the lovelies I have in my life. :) As always, I’m linking up with lots of wonderful ladies at S’s blog for Instagram Recap, so if you do this post, grab her button over here, head over there, post your link, and find other blogs to fall in love with!

Hope you’re having a fabulous Saturday! I’m spending my day watching Fancy Pants in an Over the Line tournament! :)
I feel like there’s constantly new makeup and beauty products popping up right when my wallet is feeling tight. Each month I try to budget a certain amount of money for situations like these. I’ve purchased quite a few new products this month and I’m quite excited to put them up on the blog in a few weeks to review. I thought it would be fun to first introduce them to you in this post, so you’ll know what to expect! (I am aware that some of these aren’t BRAND NEW, but they’re new for me, so that counts.)
Happy February and Groundhog’s day everyone!! This week was mostly spent on the couch under blankets with tea. I caught some sort of bug that kept me from work and anything productive really. I’m seriously proud that I even got posts up. It was miserable to say the least. :( But without further ado, here’s this week’s pictures. As per the usuag, I’m linking up with the wonderful S on Pearls and Curls with a hint of Bourbon, so you should too!! :) P.S. you can always request to follow my instagram (@Daniefaz) if you just can’t possibly wait for this post each week! ;)
